Having a grand opening or celebrating a special milestone?
A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony is an important part of your overall marketing and advertising plan and is a great way to kick off the grand opening of your business. It offers an opportunity to meet business community members and get acquainted with your neighbors and Chamber members.
The Elgin Area Chamber will conduct a ribbon-cutting ceremony complete with giant scissors and ribbon for our Chamber members. We’ll Facebook Live your event and take photographs for publicity and prosperity. We’ll invite our Chamber Ambassadors, volunteers, members, and elected officials. We encourage you to invite clients, customers, family and friends to attend the event. We can put you in touch with other Chamber members who can provide catering, professional photography & promotional products.
As a member of our Chamber and as the host of the event, we suggest that you have food and refreshments, giveaways and/or raffle prizes and decorate if you care to do so. We’ll want you to speak at the ceremony to tell us about your business services & introduces the staff to the people attending the event.
If you are interested in our services at your ribbon cutting, please complete and submit an application. We do try and schedule these events at least three weeks out so we can coordinate with everyone’s busy schedules.
